Ariel Castro, the man who held three women captive, torturing them in his Cleveland home for more than a decade has been sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years without the chance of parole. Before he was sentenced, one of his victims, Michelle Knight faced him in court reading an emotional account of her ordeal. Then Castro himself spoke, saying he's not a monster and apologized to the victims.
FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper reports:
Michelle Knight says after being kidnapped, tortured and forced to endure miscarriages:
Knight: "Years turned into eternity. He told me that my family didn't care. Christmas was the most traumatic day 'cause I never got to spend it with my son."
Ariel Castro says there was no torture or abortions and he claims the sex was consensual:
Castro: "Cause there was times that they would even ask me for sex. Many times."
Ariel Castro says he's sick, addicted to sex, has apologized to the victims and hopes they find it in their hearts to forgive him.
The judge calls his crimes "despicable" and says Castro is too dangerous to be free.
